Mahat Raghavendra who is known for his Tamil films like ‘Mankantha’, ‘Jilla’ and many more, is set for his Bollywood debut with the movie Double XL alongside Huma Qureshi, Sonakshi Sinha and Zaheer Iqbal. What movie lovers will find interesting to know is about a fun incident that took place when Mahat first met Satramm Ramani, the director of this film.
Recalling the incident Mahat said, “I was waiting in the room and I saw Satramm walk in. It was the first time we were seeing each other face to face. I got up to greet him and he immediately said ‘You’re Srikanth’ and I was like no, I’m Mahat Raghavendra. Satramm just laughed and said No, no you’re perfect for playing Srikanth Srivardhan’ that’s how our first meeting went. I am grateful to the producers for giving me such a fantastic role as my Bollywood debut and Sonakshi, Huma and Zaheer were absolutely amazing to work along with! It has surely been an enriching experiences.”
They still share a good laugh every time they remember their first meeting. The incident goes to show how no one but Mahat Raghavendra could play the character of Srikanth Srivardhan and we are all very excited about what Srikanth has in store for us in the movie.
